IS Militant Using 'British Phone Number' Held in Lebanon
A Syrian Islamic State militant has been arrested in Lebanon at the hands of the General Directorate of State Security, state-run National News Agency reported on Tuesday.
“State Security's Mount Lebanon department has arrested the Syrian O. H. on charges of belonging to the IS group,” NNA said.
The man used a “fake ID” to move from a Lebanese area to another after entering the country illegally, the agency added.
The militant was also “communicating with the group's emir in (Syria's) Raqa through a British phone number that he had been provided with,” NNA said.
